Dear Manjunath,
Welcome to HCM.
Knee joints are very important parts of the body and any problem to them should not be taken lightly. They are the weight bearing joints and if neglected will cause irreparable damage later on. You should consult an orthopedic surgeon immediately who will do the necessary tests to find the cause of your knee problem and treat accordingly. Follow his advise which may include rest to the knee joints.
Wishing you speedy recovery.

I am a 47 year old Indian woman. My kness hurt after certain exercises especially while climbing stairs. But they don t always hurt. What should I do? My x rays show only very early stages of arthritis. I made the mistake of resuming my jogging after a break of 4 years.

I had a fall today -tripped over a baby gate and fell directly on my knee cap of my right leg. I can walk with only a little pain and feel I am slightly weak in the right knee when full weight baring but if I bend it any more than about 30 degrees or if I twist it just slightly I get significant shooting pain through my knee. I had staged split stellar tendon transfer about 9 years and 10 years ago to correct patellar tracking/lateral valgus deformity problem and have very mild osteoarthritis changes in my knees. I am 44years old and active/muscular but a little overweight. I am concerned but not sure how worried should be about true joint injury vs bruising. I have taken naproxen and kept ice on knee intermittently since I fell but feels the same anytime I try to bend. Tried putting pillow under knee to elevate but uncomfortable because makes my knee bend. Any thoughts appreciated.

I have knee pain beneath, and around knee cap, mostly on the interior side of knee cap. Knee feels stiff, but no swelling. I have had this issue for some time with no relief. Shooting pain comes with stress on joint, especially when trying to lift with resistance. What type of injury is this likely? What stepa should I take moving forward?

I have had a right leg gait issue for years even following a partial laminectomy 8 years ago. My most recent (last week) MRI revealed a 5mm posterocentral L 4-L 5 soft tissue abnormality extending 5mm to the superior disc level and a 2-mm central disc bulge L 5-S 1. Both are on the right side of the discs. Is this something a neuro surgeon can correct?

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?

i broke my wrist three weeks ago and had surgery 2.5 weeks ago to align the radius bone. I have plates and screws in my arm and its now in a hard cast just below my elbow. The top part of my wrist has been aching for the past 2 days. Is this normal? Is this just a feeling from the healing or it being constricted in the cast?
